‘Better Call Saul’ Plot
Saul Goodman, the top lawyer for chemist-turned-meth dealer Walter White, wasn't always Saul Goodman. Goodman is Jimmy McGill, a small-time attorney hustling to create a reputation for himself, six years before he begins to represent Albuquerque's most renowned criminal.
He's a tenacious advocate for his low-income customers, a misfit whose ideals and goals frequently collide. Mike Ehrmantraut, a former Philadelphia cop who recently relocated to the Southwest, is Jimmy's private eye. Mike has a unique skill set that Jimmy quickly appreciates: he's a 'fixer' of difficult situations.
The fifth season begins four years after the fourth, in 2004, when Jimmy McGill (Odenkirk) meets Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman for the first time (Aaron Paul).
After obtaining his legal license, Jimmy develops into the titular character, criminal defense lawyer 'Saul Goodman,' despite rejecting the goodwill extended to him by Howard Hamlin (Fabian) in the aftermath of his brother Chuck's death.
Jimmy's clandestine and intermittent behavior as well as Kim Wexler's (Seehorn) readiness to go along with Jimmy's morally murky intentions to move forward in her casework astounds her. Gus Fring's (Esposito) legitimate restaurant business and reputation with the Juárez Cartel are disrupted by Lalo Salamanca's (Dalton) presence in Albuquerque.
Both Nacho Varga (Mando), concerned for his father's safety, and Mike Ehrmantraut (Banks), still reeling from his murder of Werner Ziegler, are caught in the crossfire between Gus and Lalo, eventually entangling Jimmy and Kim.
‘Better Call Saul’ Cast
Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando, and Giancarlo Esposito reprise their roles from previous seasons and are joined by Tony Dalton, promoted to the main cast from his recurring role in the previous season.
